Statement from Bishop Donal Mckeown an attempted murder of an off duty police officer in Omagh

23 Feb 2023

“The attempted murder of the police officer last evening in Omagh is a wholly unjustifiable and appalling act. There can be no excuse for any attack on members of the PSNI and they deserve our support. Police officers carry out their duties on behalf of the whole community”.

“My prayers are with the injured police officer and his family and those who are caring for him at this time.”
